Help measure the quality of local rivers and streams this spring and summer! Learn how to collect water samples, measure stream flow, and sample runoff from rain storms.
No prior experience needed, but participants must attend a classroom kick-off training. The first training was held on Saturday, March 25, 2017, however we will have another classroom training on Saturday, June 24, 2017 at 1:00-2:30 pm at the NEW Center, 1100 N. Main St, Ann Arbor. Additional hands-on field training will take place during the first week of sampling.
Sampling in the field is 2 or more hours each time out, with a commitment of 8 times out during the season (April – September). For those attending the June 24th training joining mid-season, a commitment of 4 to 6 sampling trips is expected of participants (July – September). Sampling sites are one or more stream sites in Washtenaw, Wayne, or Livingston Counties. Volunteers near or willing to travel to Wayne and Livingston Counties are particularly needed.
